I was at a market research activity tonight and the theme was choosing an ad that we thought would be effective for the new laws regarding no lane changing in Melbourne's tunnels. At the moment they are thinking it may come into being in April. The whole theme was about consideration for others and to be aware of people changing lanes, as well as those changing lanes to ensure they do so with advanced notice. All road users were covered including motorcycles and trucks. The reason being that people must change lanes well ahead of the tunnels before entering because once you are in there then you are stuck in your lane. I see huge ramifications, especially entering the Burnley tunnel because the left exit lane is INSIDE the tunnel so when you enter from the westgate freeway you are in the centre lane and according to the proposed ads for the new laws you cannot change lanes inside the tunne so you must stay in the centre lane until exiting and you have less than 100 metres to do it in. Stupid laws created by stupid people to save us from ourselves. I'm not knocking the marketing people as they are doing their job but I am livid at the decision makers. It;s about time Netrider formed a political lobby or at least a commitee to investigate some idiot laws and make recommendations to the appropriate committees. We have people intelligent and articulate enough to do so.
